SAP Business Planning & Consolidation

In today’s fast paced economy, organizations are required to keep pace with the ever changing market & economic conditions by quickly adapting their business & planning processes. Traditional planning & budgeting solutions are often not up to the mark as they typically produce complex processes that are difficult to maintain, and generates inconsistent and outdated results.

Building a streamlined and integrated planning process is the way forward as this enables linking the financial business plan with the operational aspects of the business so that you quickly adjust plans and forecasts, shorten budget cycles and close the books more timely.

SAP BusinessObjects Business Planning and Consolidation module provides a multi-dimensional platform to design integrated planning, budgeting and forecasting solutions

  • It can be used to develop simplified, and user friendly planning processes that facilitates increasing user adoption and ownership of the processes
  • It integrates all BPC, BI and BW systems and processes that had previously run as standalone and also provides robust reporting capability, predictive analytics using what-if scenarios and work flow management
  • With SAP Business Planning and Consolidation 10.1, version for SAP NetWeaver, SAP provides a New Unified Model with tighter integration with SAP NetWeaver BW and Optimization of planning functions to leverage SAP HANA

Executing a SAP BusinessObjects BPC initiative presents many challenges and requires diligently working with the business units to develop a clear vision & alignment on business planning processes and a clear roadmap for implementation. Some of the key considerations for a BPC initiative are: Gaining global alignment on the planning processes, Harmonization of master data and related structures, Integration with BW core processes, Designing a scalable BPC architecture and landscape and Setting up a Governance model & Reporting Strategy.
